I &hearts the 80s: 1980 Mazda GLC

Is it possible that there is a better-preserved 1980 Mazda GLC wagon in the world? Seems unlikely to me. Seems exceedingly unlikely to me in fact that one of these should have survived at all, which makes this example all the more miraculous.

I kinda can't get over it. Those puny little 155/80 tires — 80! The little instrument binnacle surrounded by fake wood, the two-spoke steering wheel, and that switchgear ... all wrapped, of course, in sensible biege — but with pinstriping! There is something deeply charming to me about all of this. I kind of really want it.

"The lines of body style are as acceptable and pleasing today as when introduced." Couldn't have said it better myself.
